sexual dysfunction

After treatment, many survivors face sexual dysfunction. For young adults, these problems can be especially challenging.
As a family therapist, I've seen many couples over the years whose presenting complaint revolves around sex. Usually it's because the sex is too infrequent, too lackluster, or at the male parter has some kind of sexual dysfunction. (I've only seen one case where the complaint was too much sex!)
For those who are dealing with sexual dysfunction, anxiety is often not far behind. Comparison, control, and social fears can all complicate sexual relationships. Whether it's a lack of self-esteem, insecurity about sexual ability, or fear of an undesired identity, anxiety plays a role.
Risks include the inability to achieve erections or ejaculate.
It is quite possible to overcome bedroom challenges, especially when each is approached as a couples issue and without blame.
